The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the official philanthropy of the Sorority since 1958, is the recipient of funds raised by chapters to support research to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and to improve the quality of life for the 30,000 children and young adults with disease. In 1992 scientists described the gene that, when mutated, causes CF; however, a cure for CF has not yet been found. In appreciation of the Sorority’s fundraising efforts, the CFF named a research fellowship in honor of Delta Phi Epsilon. Over one million dollars has been raised to date for the CFF through Delta Phi Epsilon.
The Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation
This Foundation was established in 1967 in honor of our Fiftieth Anniversary. The Foundation is available to assist members and their children in completing their education or continue with graduate studies through grants and loans. The Educational Foundation also provides funding for educational programs and leadership training for undergraduate members and advisors.

The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa
and Associated Disorders
Delta Phi Epsilon has supported The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD) since 1985 through fund raising efforts. ANAD is a national organization dedicated to alleviating problems of anorexia and other eating disorders. Its methods include education, newsletters, counseling, self-help groups, and providing funds for research. Delta Phi Epsilon is the first international sorority to pledge regular support to an organization concerned with the effects of eating disorders.
